Nisha Thayananthan has been officially announced as Miss Earth Malaysia 2020 on Sunday, September 6 at the Convention Hall of Quill City Mall in Kuala Lumpur.
The 28-year-old medical practitioner and philanthropist from Seremban was a Top 6 finalist during Miss World Malaysia 2019 pageant.
Nisha is practicing her profession at the Putrajaya Hospital where she is at the forefront of the battle against the COVID-19 pandemic. She is also a part-time model and actress.
The beauty queen also believes in helping others especially the less fortunate because for her “it is always better to give than to receive.”
“My parents have always encouraged me to help the less fortunate, and I’ve been involved in charitable and humanitarian work in the past,” she said in a recent interview.
The new Miss Earth Malaysia succeeds last year’s titleholder, Nur Haziyah Fatin. She is expected to represent her country at next year’s Miss Earth competition.
